The Feathered Nest is not suitable for children under the age of 12 years. Parents, by entering into an accommodation contract with The Feathered Nest, accept all responsibilities for their child (ren). Children need to be supervised by their parents (guardians) at all times as the property features several unfenced dam and wetland areas with abundant free ranging wildlife and is set in a fragile forested environment.


We are located in a valley in a rural area and on occasions you can expect to hear tractors harvesting crops, cows baying, crows calling, irrigation pumps and those noises expected in a rural setting. Generally though, it is very peaceful and quiet.
